An injury-time goal by Jan Venegoor of Hesselink gave Hull City a 2-1 home Premier League win over Stoke City to ease the pressure on manager Phil Brown on Sunday.[LNB] Brown's position was under threat after Hull's poor start to their second season in the top flight but Sunday's victory, their third in 12 games, bought him some time.[LNB] Matthew Etherington put Stoke ahead in the 29th minute with Seyi Olofinjana curling in a neat equaliser after 62 before Venegoor cashed in on a blunder by Stoke keeper Thomas Sorensen.[LNB] Everton won 2-1 at West Ham United to end a run of seven games without a win in all competitions.[LNB] They showed little on Sunday until Louis Saha shot them ahead after 27 minutes.[LNB] Dan Gosling doubled the lead after 63 minutes and though Tony Hibbert put the ball in his own net a minute later as he attempted to clear Junior Stanislas's goal-bound effort Everton held on to take the points.[LNB] Wigan Athletic drew 1-1 at home with Fulham while leaders Chelsea were playing Manchester United at Stamford Bridge (4 p.m. British time).[LNB] (Editing by Clare Fallon)
